George Washington

Do you remember this post?

My girl is growing up way way too fast for me.  A few weeks ago Lucy came home with her first real project assignment.  I'm a total nerd and was so excited for this.  She had to give a report on a President and she was assigned George Washington.  I wish I could show you the footage of Tony being George Washington in a school play as a kid.

We watched some biography channel videos on him and went to the library and collected some books.  Then we got to work.  I was a bit nervous about how she'd handle all the coloring and cutting and all...I wanted it to be her project, as hard as that was for me.

We had a lot of fun together.  It was a great time to talk about our country's heritage and founding.  She was excited to work on it and said, "I love George Washington and I love you."

She had to give an oral presentation with it, here she is practicing at home:  

She gave her presentation on Tuesday and said it went great.
